You thought you were riding high a year ago,
you had a new record on the radio,
but now things have changed and you need a break.
Now, you're eating hot dogs instead of steak.
You missed the big time.

You get up each morning and go towards the door.
Looking for a factor who will spend some more.
It's so hard to find a friend who is true.
Once you were so happy and now you're so blue.
You missed the big time.

Hey Mister, remember when you were ten feet tall?
Tell me, how does it feel to be nothing at all?

At the end of each day you head towards your home.
You feel like a failure, walking all alone.
You roam down the street 'neath the lights that blink.
Give you plenty time to wonder and think,
think about the big time.

Hey Mister, remember when you were ten feet tall?
Tell me, how does it feel to be nothing at all.

At the end of the day you head toward your home.
You feel like a failure, walking all alone.
You roam down the street 'neath the lights that blink.
Give you plenty time to wonder and think,
think about the big time.

Forget it baby. No, you'll never make it.
It's so hard to make it twice.

The big time.
